The doctors said Dave Dravecky would never pitch again. But nine months after the removal of cancer from his left arm, Dravecky returned to the mound to pitch eight electrifying innings for the San Francisco Giants, leading them to victory. It was a landmark event for a man whose toughest opponent never set foot in the batter's box. On June 18,1991,22 months after his dramatic comeback, Dave's arm was removed when the cancer recurred. It was a blow that would have left many men bitter—but not Dravecky. His sense of purpose in life rested in something higher than his sports career or physical abilities. Dravecky: A Story of Courage and Grace is far more than a sports documentary. It's a chronicle of faith that triumphs over incredible obstacles. Dave and his wife, Jan, exemplify what it means to trust God when the bottom drops out. Here is their story, seen through their eyes and those of the people who've filled their lives. Share the prayers ... the hopes ...the tears and triumphs of the Dravecky family. Relive the highs and lows in the major leagues with Dave's fellow players and coaches. Above all, hear the Draveckys' powerful testimony of faith in Jesus Christ. It's a message of hope and encouragement for everyone faced with adversity, pointing beyond the hardships to the things that matter most. Dave Dravecy's story is also available in his books Comeback and When You Can't Come Back. "One of the most dramatic moments in sports history..." —The New York Times "It was enough to devastate the strongest of the strong. Not Dave Dravecky. Rather, he found himself overflowing with gratitude, confident that God was writing another chapter in his life." —Chuck Swindoll "Courage is Dave Dravecky." —The Pittsburgh Press "INSPIRING. COURAGEOUS': —Focus ON THE FAMILY MAGAZINE
